Endowments
drop 8 percent
By Kimberly Anne Lopez
Alligator Writer
klopez@alligator.org
UF is not invincible to the economic downturn affect affecting
ing affecting everything from small businesses to large-scale tour tourism
ism tourism around the nation.
The UF Foundation, a nonprofit organization that re receives,
ceives, receives, invests and administers private support for UF and
is responsible for $1.6 billion in funds expended and cur current
rent current assets, has estimated that, to date in the fiscal year,
endowment assets are down 8 percent, said Paul Robell,
vice president for Development and Alumni Affairs.
"We don't take a lot of pride in that, but everyone is
down," Robell said. "Eight percent is better than most."
A survey conducted by The Chronicle of Higher Edu Education
cation Education indicated the average return rate for college en endowments
dowments endowments in 2001 fell into the negatives for the first time
since 1984, when the average return was -2.2 percent.
Figures for 2001 cannot be concluded until the end of the
2001 fiscal year next spring.
Before Sept. 11, the economy was experiencing its first
major decline since the 19905, but the terrorist attacks
further catapulted the economy downward, Robell said.
Recovery from these losses will take some time but may
be aided by the stock market's return to its state just be before
fore before Sept. 11, he said.
The foundation's decline was noted after it processed
about 89,000 gifts and total assets grew to $986.3 million
-a SIBB million increase from 1999 -in the 2000 fiscal
year.
But in the long run, the trivial turns of the economy
may not have as big an impact on UF than the long-run
performance of the market, said J6el Houston, chairman
of UF's Warrington College of Business' Department of Fi Finance,
nance, Finance, Insurance and Real Estate.
"The university is a long-term investor in the market,"
Houston said in an e-mail. "So, what really matters is the
long-run performance of the market. Day-to-day ups and
downs are less of a concern."
Fortunately, the last decade was great for the economy,
helping endowments strengthen and grow at UF and
other universities, he said.
But the economy does not go up' every year, and the
economy is going through a "rough patch" right now,
Houston said.
"It is certainly possible that things could get worse be before
fore before they get better," he said.
While UF continues to receive funds from friends and
alumni, the difficulty in attracting new donors is the flip
side of why endowments are declining, UF Provost David
Colburn said.
"Donors are reluctant to donate funds to a university at
this time," Colburn said. "Their livelihood is threatened
by economic decline."
Virtually every endowment has decreased because of
the stock market, but because of an endowment's
long-term stability, there are no short-term, negative im impacts,
pacts, impacts, he said.
UF will just have to wait and see the long-term effect on
all areas from faculty positions to educational programs
funded by endowments, Colburn said.
Reluctant donors are the result of psychological im impacts,
pacts, impacts, because after emerging from a long period of eco economic
nomic economic growth, it is difficult to get over the psychological
impacts of the current downturn, Robell said.
Realizing this, the foundation has made a strong effort
to reassure current and potential donors and is planning
to make even stronger fund-raising efforts, Robell said.
"It's the psychology that's difficulty to overcome," he
said. "But all of this doesn't stop us from trying."

McCain, a member of the Senate Armed

Considerations such as civilian deaths

month of Ramadan that begins in
mid-November must be "secondary to the
job at hand, which is to wipe out nests of
terrorism," he said.

Americans may see an end to our present era of video game
warfare and a turn toward a much more dangerous phase of fight fighting
ing fighting if political leaders have their way. Sen. John McCain said
Sunday that America must send large numbers of ground troops
to Afghanistan if the country wishes to prevail in the war against
terrorism.
"I think what we're going to have to [do is] put in numbers of
forces that are capable of maintaining a base for a period of time
relatively short so they can branch out and move into certain
areas where we believe that the Taliban and al-Qaida's networks
are located," the Arizona Republican said on CBS's "Face the Na Nation."
tion." Nation."
In recent conflicts, such as the Gulf War, Americans have be become
come become used to fighting casualty-free battles. Public opinion has
not usually supported the use of ground troops. The U.S. military
has favored utilizing airstrikes over frontline combat troops for
fear of losing significant numbers of soldiers.
Young Americans have never gone through a time where they
had to see their fellow Americans go off to war and possibly come
home in body bags. They are not ready for it and, thus, have
negative opinions on any kind of action that would put their
friends and countrymen in harm's way.
However, McCain feels differently. McCain, a veteran of the Viet Vietnam
nam Vietnam War, said public opinion on America's current conflict would
not parallel Vietnam if casualties start to mount in a ground assault.
He believes the drastic impact the Sept. 11 attacks had on the Amer American
ican American psyche will keep the country unified behind the war effort
even if the cost in service personnel deaths mounts.
In a three-week war in which only three people have been
killed, that belief remains to be seen.
Democratic leadership is also behind the call for a potential oc occupation
cupation occupation of Afghan territory. Dick Gephardt said in order to root
out the al-Qaida network he would support increased involve involvement
ment involvement beyond just use of special operations troops to include
ground forces.
But the recent history of large-scale warfare in the region is less
than comforting.
The Afghans fought and repelled British forces in the 19th
century, at a time when Great Britain was at the height of its im imperial
perial imperial power. The country's forbidding and mountainous ter terrain,
rain, terrain, combined with a primitive road network and fierce winter
weather, plagued the technologically superior British as much
as enemy troops.
Troops from the Soviet Union encountered many of the same
problems when ground forces rolled into the country in 1979,
granted the Afghan forces were supported with weapons and
training by the United States in an effort to even the playing field.
Sending U.S. forces into Afghanistan beyond our present spe special
cial special operations forces would be a mistake at this time. We do not
yet have a clear military objective for this new war.
The objective we do have to root out Osama bin Laden and
others responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist acts -is best accom accomplished
plished accomplished by utilizing special operations forces. A full-scale military
presence on the ground will not help the situation and could
needlessly cost many lives.
The new war our country has undertaken will not end quickly.
President Bush, Secretary of State Colin Powell and other leaders
have all stated this will be a long, drawn out conflict. All moves
should be careful and calculated.
It is far too soon to send in the cavalry.

Earlier, as the mourners were
escorted to their seats, many said
it was their first visit to the area
known as "ground zero." And for
many, the sight of the destruction
caused their jaws to drop.
Josh Vicente, a teen-ager who
lost his uncle, 30-year-old Tom

particularly difficult. Pecorelli, a

"We didn't see him again,"

Wambach gets another hat trick care of Bulldogs

By Joshua Hines
Contributing Writer
While Andi Sellers had her first hat
trick of the season this weekend, she was
not the only one.
It might have been a chilly fall night Fri Friday,
day, Friday, but senior Abby Wambach warmed
up the No, 15 UF soccer team with her first
hat trick as well, v
Wambach sizzled two headers and a
two-yard shot in less than 26 first-half
minutes to record the hat trick against
Mississippi State.
The senior has scored at least one
header in six of her eight career hat tricks.

It was Wambach's second hat trick in
as many seasons against Mississippi
State, and first since Nov. 4 of last season.
"I don't really count the hat tricks I score
and who I score them against," Wambach
said. "It's just good to know I can do it ev every
ery every once in a while. It is difficult to do at
this level and it gives you something to
strive for."
Her hat trick performances have
helped UF outscore Mississippi State 11-0
the past two seasons. Mississippi State
coach Neil McGuire said Wambach is
nearly unstoppable to defend.
"Last year we tried to man-mark her,
but that didn't work," McGuire said.

"This year we tried not to man-mark her
and that didn't work either. At the end of
the game I told Becky Burleigh that Abby
Wambach is the best female player I have
seen in my life."

Second scrimmage leaves much room for improvement

By Jill Martin
Alligator Writer
jmartin@alligator.org
With Southeastern Confer Conference
ence Conference officials and a group of UF
Boosters in attendance,
Sunday's scrimmage against the
practice team brought the
Gators women's basketball team
another step closer toward a
game day atmosphere.
It was the second of three
preseason scrimmages for the
Gators, and Sunday's was full
of mistakes.
UF finished the day with 21
turnovers, shooting 26.6 per-
ilmr.and.33 5.

pected expected in this match," Wise said.
"What we have seen in Arkansas is
one of the best serving and blocking
teams we have faced all year and ...
fortunately today our best was good
enough to beat a very, very talented
Arkansas team."
Friday's match proved to be as
tough as UF had expected, UF coach
Mary Wise said.
Arkansas and UF exchanged leads
in Game One seven times. The score
remained close until the finish and
UF had two gatne points before they
finalized with an ace by freshman
Lauren Moscovic.
In defense, the Gators outblocked
the Razorbacks 9-4. This is the 14th
straight match in which UF has
outblocked its opponent.
"Tonight is that much more spe special
cial special because we outblocked one of
the top blocking teams in the coun country,

percent from the free-throw
line.
What UF coach Carol Ross
really stressed, however, was
UF's defense.
"There's no question, our de defense
fense defense needs work," Ross said. "It
had some holes in it. We didn't
always get the ball covered,
which is not acceptable."
UF experimented with for forward
ward forward Tamia Williams playing
point guard. Williams ran the
point when she was in high
school, but did not practice for
the Gators as a guard until the
day before the scrimmage.
.,Williams said.she wa,s, sus-

try, country, and we did that because we con controlled
trolled controlled the first contact," Wise said.
"I think tonight we blocked like we
are capable of blocking, we were
just very fortunate that we passed
so well, that we didn't give Arkansas
a chance."
Leading the Gators in kills with
her 20th consecutive match with
double-digit kills, was sophomore
Aury Cruz with 15. Cruz is also the
SEC's leader in the number of aces,
contributing two in Friday's match.
Cruz said the last two matches
they've played have been against
the toughest opponents they have
faced since Sept. 21 when they de defeated
feated defeated South Carolina in five games.
"I think Arkansas and LSU. LSU
played us really good on Wednes Wednesday,
day, Wednesday, so those are the two teams that
I think are going to give us a lot of
trouble," Cruz said about possible
SEC tournament opponents.
Throughout the match the offi officials
cials officials had to keep the rulebook
handy as several rare calls were
made concerning the new rules im implemented
plemented implemented at the beginning of the
season.
During game three, senior Kris
Bova chased a ball under the net
and hit it back over to the UF side of
the courc from out of bounds. UF
eventually won the point and there
was a short delay while questions
about the validity of the play were
discussed.
A foot fault was called on Cruz,
Bova kept a play alive by digging it
with her foot and there was a point
penalty against the Razorbacks
when a hit was made from behind
the 10-foot line. In tight matches
these plays could be a result of
nerves, but this was not the case,
Bova said.
"There's been a lot of new
changes in the game with the let
serve and the rally-scoring, you
know using your feet and there's
the new thing of pursuing the ball
that's going out of bounds," Bova
said. "It's just a lot of new things and
I don't think it had anything to do
with us being pressured or any anything.
thing. anything. We just calmed ourselves,
played our game and followed the
game plan."

prised that Ross told her to run
the offense.
"It was kind of natural, but
then again it was kind of hard
because the intensity level was
more picked up instead of like
high school play," Williams
said. "The point guard part was
natural but I had to pick it up a
little bit."
UF will have its last presea preseason

"This will be our last scrim scrimmage

Ross said. "Our next scrimmage
we'll just primarily be working

can bring it. We'll use media

breaks in-the action, which we
didn't do today."

Defensive end pleased with first action of season"

It's been a long eight weeks for
Clint Mitchell.
Check that. It's been a long
four months.
Mitchell made his return to the
playing field Saturday for the
Gators after serving a six-game
suspension for violating an un unspecified
specified unspecified team rule.
Mitchell, who started nine
games for UF last season, got
about 15 plays in but did not re record
cord record an official defensive statistic.
"It feels pretty good to get back
in the groove of things," Mitchell
said. I played about as much as I
wanted to. I didn't expect them to
play me a lot. If I was a coach I
wouldn't play me a lot either.
That's what we have the first two
games for, to get into game
shape."
His suspension was unrelated
to a sworn complaint filed against
him for an alleged sexual assault
June 20. Mitchell was cleared of
those allegations by the State
Attorney.
"I got into situations I
shouldn't have," Mitchell said.

Mitchell admitted to getting
emotional, but it did not affect
his play.
"I didn't get choked up. I was
intense out there," Mitchell said.
"That's how I like to be."
THE REASON # WHY: When it comes
to explaining the keys to victory,
it's a lot simpler for Coach Steve
Spurrier than it is for almost any anyone
one anyone else.
This week, with former Florida
State offensive coordinator Mark
Richt facing Spurrier for the first
time as a head coach, the most
frequent question of the week for
the two coaches may have been if
Richt's FSU experience was any
benefit to the Bulldogs.
Spurrier had all the answers af after
ter after the game.
"I knew if they won the game, it
was because Mark Richt was
coaching Georgia. If we won the
game, it was because we had
better players than Georgia right
now," Spurrier said. "That seems
to be the theme, that we've got
the best players right now, so
that's OK. And I think we do have
the best players right now. Hope Hopefully
fully Hopefully it will continue for a while."

look, not seen on Gators players
since New Year's Day 1998 in
the Citrus Bowl.
The look was still odd, as the

Gators play in
pain; columnist
takes time out
JACKSONVILLE Friday night at The
Jacksonville Landing, I broke my face.
correction: Friday night at The Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville Landing, someone else broke my face.
For the sake of time, I'll tell you what
happened in the old six-word summary:
He was big. I am small.
Funny, after this weekend, I never
thought I could empathize with Georgia
fans. Turns out, now I do.
Both the Bulldogs and I got caught up
in something we never should have. And
despite the plausible defense of why we
were doing what we were doing, both of
us ended up with black eyes compliments
of one solid punch from the big dogs.
I'll tell you one thing. After Saturday, I
will never criticize anyone for not playing
in a football game because of an injury.
Consider this. Before every showdown, a
doctor replaces a hard cast on Andra Davis'
arm with a soft cast so the linebacker can
play despite a broken bone in his hand.
Center David Jorgensen injured his
midway through last season but
fought until he could undergo surgery af after
ter after the year was over.
After every practice and every game,
Rob Roberts has to have a gash in his fore forehead
head forehead stitched up so that blood won't con continuously
tinuously continuously pour into his eyes.
Not me. After a broken sinus bone kept
my head feeling more like an unopened
can of Coke that had been thrown against
a brick wall 37 times, my colleagues and I
saw it fit to sit me out. No writing for me.
While I watched the game on televi television,
sion, television, Davis ripped Georgia's defense apart
with a team-leading seven tackles.
Considering my condition, no one was
surprised to hear I couldn't work. I don't
think anyone would have questioned any
of those players if they had taken the day
off, either.
The difference is they didn't. And don't
expect them to take another day off this
season.
If, come the end of the season, the
Gators are among the best in the country,
this will be why.
Not all because of how other teams
fare. Not all because Rex Grossman could
likely throw for more than 300 yards in
every game this season.
Instead, it will be because UF's players
are willing to put their bodies on the line
to win for their team.
JJF produced some very ugly moments
Saturday. Not as ugly as my eye, but they
were indeed ugly. Four fumbles, two in interceptions
terceptions interceptions and 12 penalties concocted
one result: a win.
The Gators won't have to always be as
as everyone expects them to be
this season to be successful under one
condition: as long as players like Davis,
Roberts and Jorgensen are willing to con continue
tinue continue to play through the pain.
As for me, I'll use the punch that broke
*my face as my excuse to take some time off.
again, the Gators don't need me
to win a national championship.

Spurrier wants to make sure something
is done about it.
"We are not supposed to talk about the
officiating, but some of those calls they
were bad. I don't understand how they
can make those calls," Spurrier said on
his weekly teleconference. "We'll go
through the proper channels."
Spurrier said he has asked Athletics Di Director
rector Director Jeremy Foley to contact Bobby
Gaston, the head of officials for teh
Southeastern Conference.

UF's defense was able to keep Georgia scoreless in the second half en route to the Gators'
24-10 win against the Bulldogs.

game Gragame with an interception
which led to a Georgia field
goal.
The next UF drive tied the
game with a Jeff Chandler
field goal after a false start
penalty and a sack pushed the
Gators from the 1 yard line to
the 15.
"I don't care [about the
missed points]," said
Grossman, who threw for his
seventh consecutive
300-plus-yard game with 407
yards. "We won the game.
That's all that matters."

"We'll see what happens because it's
getting a little ridiculous in the last few
games, especially the one [Saturday],"
Spurrier said.
No. 4 UF was penalized 12 times for
106 yards, the most yards this season. On
the year, the Gators have been penalized
62 times, including 15 against Missis Mississippi
sippi Mississippi State, for losses of 428 yards.
Spurrier was especially unhappy with
two holding calls made on Litojheppard
on Saturday. Neither time was a hold ap apparent,
parent, apparent, and both were on Georgia
third-down plays sustaining drives in the
third quarter that kept the Bulldogs on
the field for nearly 13 minutes.
"I don't know how they could call those,"
Spurrier said. "A lot of neutral people that
watch these games are trying to figure out
why somebody's got it in for the Gators. It's
getting out of hand ... Sometimes we have
to yell about it and see what happens."

Grossman finished the day
27 of 35 with two touchdowns
while running for another.
During the third quarter,
UF was again deep in Georgia
territory when Earnest Gra Graham's
ham's Graham's second fumble of the
game ended the Gators only
drive of the quarter at five
plays.
Despite three fumbles, Gra Graham
ham Graham had UF's best rushing
game of the season with 131
yards on the ground.
"We did some things that
made it tough on ourselves,
but it was a tough win," Gra Gragame

I did not know that...
After seven games last year, UFhad a plus-16
turnover margin. This season they are mi minus-9.
nus-9. minus-9. UF's 20 turnovers more than doubles
the seven it had at this point last year.

ham said. "That just goes to
show we -have a lot of room to
improve. It shows that with
some adversity we can pull
out the win."
The Bulldogs had their own
problems during the third
quarter. Georgia had the ball
twice as long during the third
than during the entire first
half l2 minutes, 55 seconds.

It was obvious Saturday that the crowd
was not happy with the officials. It booed
nearly every time a yellow flag hit the
field.
With the Bulldogs penalized four times
for 20 yards, the disparity had UF fans giv giving
ing giving officials a standing ovation when Geor Georgia
gia Georgia was flagged late in the game.
"They came up with some cheap penal penalties,"
ties," penalties," Sheppard said Saturday. "Some of
them had you. just scratching your head,
but we had to keep fighting through it."
Spurrier said he also sent a videotape
to the SEC in 1993 to see why UF was the
most penalized team in the conference,
as it is again this season.
Bulldogs coach Mark Richt wouldn't
get drawn into the argument.
"I didn't get too involved with the offi officiating,"
ciating," officiating," he said. "I think the officials do
the best job they can."

ACROSS THE STATE Florida crime drops, Miami still on top (AP) -Florida's crime rate dipped in 2000 at a rate substantially better than the nation's, but the Miami area still leads the country in motor vehicle thefts and robberies and is second in violent crime, the FBI is expected to announce today. The crime index, which includes murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft, decreased 4.1 percent in Florida and dropped 0.2 percent nationwide. In violent crime, the index only dropped 0.6 percent in Florida and 0.3 percent nationwide. But the Miami metropolitan area still leads the nation in motor vehicle thefts despite having had a 45 percent drop in the number of stolen vehicles since 1995, according to FBI statistics. According to the FBI statistics, Miami had 5,722 motor vehicle thefts and Miami Beach had 1,324 in 2000. On average, 19 cars were stolen each day.

V est turnout of the 13 Rape Ag classes offered by University Police since March 2000. The class consists of 12 hours spread over three nights in which women affiliated with UF receive training on self-defense strategies, from textbook techniques to physical methods. "The vast majority of rapes are committed by men against women," Hamby said, adding that women need to be taught specific things that do not apply to males on how to defend themselves. "This is not some all-inclusive class. The whole purpose of the class is to give you some options that you might not st 0e ed for have had before." Maharaja had waited a year to get into the program, which now has about 100 women on its waiting list. "I feel that any womanliving alone they should definitely learn some kind of self-defense," she said. "I think you should be prepared." And a bonus in the program -RAD allows its graduates to return for refresher courses anywhere in the nation. UF dental student Ariana Grimm echoed the thoughts of her classmate. "I just think that everyone should take it," Grimm said at majority the conclusion of .are Wednesday's course. by men "All girls. It never can men. This hurt.

Wait Hamby ression Defense Systems instructor The Training Instructors, trained specifically by the national program, take the women through an intense first night of lecture. They learn various techniques to create barriers for intruders in their homes and about different types of devices to use such as pepper spray and whistles. For UF sophomore Andrea Carlson, the class reinforced her work for the UF class she is enrolled in this semester dealing with self-defense. "It's similar to this," she said. "All of the statistics -we've learnedthat. But, like I said, you can't get too much." And for most of the participants, they couldn't wait to get physical. The second night the women are taught basic maneuvers to defend themselves if they are attacked, including kicks and punches. Then they were allowed to practice 'During thet td c UPDofficer.Terry Killen and,Sgt.Walt rcl AMiaria Gimm, a second year dkptals ent, and taunther,trying together to work on vocal skills.

For some, it was the first time they had thrown a punch. But for others, self-defense is an area they have had extensive training in the past. UF freshmen Caryl Buonopane has 11 years of experience of self-defense classes, but said the RAD class offered her statistics and background she was not aware of. "You don't really find out what they're telling us about," she said, adding it also is the first course she's taken in which she could practice her moves. "This one is actually a lot different." Hamby said usually there are women in-the class with extensive training or with extraordinary power behind their punch. And Buonopane is one of those women. "In every class, someone rings my bell,he said, laughing. I'll just have to back off'a minute -'Wow, that was pret ty good.'"P Thethird'night the women apply their training n scenarios.

1 .4 0 -MIAY, 2l.it McCain: Ground troops needed to defea The oddledProm WASHINGTON -Sen. John McCain said Sunday that America must unleash "all the might of United States military power," including large numbers of ground troops, to prevail inAfghanistan. Bush administration officials said the Taliban is being weakened, but warped Americans must be prepared for a drawn-out conflict. As the debate about military strikes intensifled in Washington, U.S. attacks on the Afghan capital of Kabul killed at least 13 civla, witnesses there said, and.warplanes returned for a second wave of attacks late in the day. American bombs pounded targets in the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif, the Taliban stronghold of Kandahar in the south, Herat in the west and Jalalabad in the east, said the Afghan Islamic Press, a private news agency. Some 100 airborne Army Rangers and other -special ground troops struck a Taliban-controlled airfield and a residence of a Taliban leader earlier this month, but McCain said that's not enough. He called for a "very, very significant" force large enough to capture and hold territory. "I think what we're going to have to put in [is] numbers of forces that are capable of maintaining a base for a period of time, relatively short, so theycan-branch out and move into certain area where we believe that the Taliban and al-Qaida's networks are located," the Arizona Republican said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "It's going to take a very big effort and probably casualties will be involved and it won't be accomplished through air power alone," he said on CNN's "Late Edition." Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, said he agreed with McCain that large numbers of ground troops might be needed. And Dick Gephardt, D-Mo., said if President George W. Bush "comes to the conclusion that it's going to take that or something like that in order to get these people and to get this network torn down, I would support it." Bush's chief of staff, Andrew Card, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld were noncommittal when asked about si cant ground forces. "Let's not go there yet,Card said on NBC's "Meet the Press." McCain, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Bush's 2000 rival for the GOP presidential nomination, has warned that undue restraint by the U.S. military and allies was emboldening Taliban fighters. Considerations such as civilian deaths from U.S. bombing and the Muslim holy month of Ramadan that begins in mid-November must be "secondary to the job at hand, which is to wipe out nests of terrorism," he said.

,Y, OCTOBER 29, 2001 jjj0 bt~iej&Pflorda gl~lator Founded in 1906 Independent since 1973 We Inform. You Decide. Trey Csar Editor Jason Brown Editorial Page Editor Michele Jones Mark Ward Editorial Board ____ ___ EDITORIAL __ Full forces Americans may see an end to our present era of video game warfare and a turn toward a much more dangerous phase of fighting if political leaders have their way. Sen. John McCain said Sunday that America must send large numbers of ground troops to Afghanistan if the country wishes to prevail in the war against terrorism. "I think what we're going to have to [do is] put in numbers of forces that are capable of maintaining a base for a period of time relatively short -so they can branch out and move into certain areas where we believe that the Taliban and al-Qaida's networks are located," the Arizona Republican said on CBS's "Face the Nation." In recent conflicts, such as the Gulf War, Americans have become used to fighting casualty-free battles. Public opinion has not usually supported the use of ground troops. The U.S. military has-favored utilizing airstrikes over frontline combat troops for fear of losing significant numbers of soldiers. Young Americans have never gone through a time where they had to see their fellow Americans go off to war and possibly come home in body bags. They are not ready for it and, thus, have negative opinions on any kind of action that would put their friends and countrymen in harm's way. However, McCain feels differently. McCain, a veteran of the Vietnam War, said public opinion on America's current conflict would not parallel Vietnam if casualties start to mount in a ground assault. He believes the drastic impact the Sept. 11 attacks had on the American psyche will keep the country unified behind the war effort even if the cost in service personnel deaths mounts. In a three-week war in which only three people have been killed, that belief remains to be seen. Democratic leadership is also behind the call for a potential occupation of Afghan territory. Dick Gephardt said in order to root out the al-Qaida network he would support increased involvement beyond just use of special operations troops to include ground forces. But the recent history of large-scale warfare in the region is less than comforting. The Afghans fought and repelled British forces in the 19th century, at a time when Great Britain was at the height of its imperial power. The county's forbidding and mountainous'terrain, combined with a primitive road network and fierce winter weather, plagued the technologically superior British as much as enemy troops. Troops from the Soviet Union encountered many of the same problems when ground forces rolled into the country in 1979, granted the Afghan forces were supported with weapons and training by the United States in an effort to even the playing field. Sending U.S. forces into Afghanistan beyond our present special operations forces would be a mistake at this time. We do not yet have a clear military objective for this new war. The objective we do have -to root out Osama bin Laden and others responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist acts -is best accomplished by utilizing special operations forces. A full-scale military presence on the ground will not help the situation and could needlessly cost many lives. The new war our country has undertaken will not end quickly. President Bush, Secretary of State Colin Powell and other leaders have all stated this will be a long, drawn out conflict. All moves should be careful and calculated. It is far too soon to send in the cavalry. The ALLIGATOR encourages comments from readers. Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one letter-sized page).

They engage in stereotyping and oppression stating claims such as male-only groups "reinforce and reward each other's behavior," rather than addressing sexism. With such generalizations, how can Campus NOW criticize men for sexism? They engage in the chauvinism that we, as females, often criticize men for. They also forget that progress involves compromise. Would they rather men remain uneducated about rape for fear of asking the "wrong question" among a group of feminists, or allow women to attend these forums while prohibiting them from accomplishing the goal of increased awareness? Lastly, men can also be victims of rape. This is seldom discussed, because of humiliation. Men, like women, have the right to discuss rape among their own gender. We should fight all forms of sexism, rather than bemoan female status as "the oppressed ones." Robin Hartill 2LS Editor: This letter is motivated by, and directed to, both Israelis and Palestinians alike. The current "land" dispute over Israel began thousands of years ago when the homeless Jews (they didn't yet have a homeland to call Israel) wandered out of Egypt and into what was Palestine. The land was acquired fair and square, through force. It had belonged to the Palestinians, but the Jews conquered it. There are very few pieces of real estate on this planet that didn't previously belong to someone other than the current occupants. Let's get real, America is no different. This land was occupied by millions of natives that were forced out, making room for what is now the good ol' U.S. of A. Anyone that assumes either of Israel's current occupants is anything other than that an occupant -is delusional. The conflict is not over ownership of a parcel of land, but rather a dispute between two rivals that both claim to be "the chosen Of God." There cannot and will not be peace between Palestinians and Israelis, because neither can relinquish their "chosen" status. It's not about -about status. Eric Johnson UF Alumnus land; it's Elections may have a problem Editor: I ran as an independent in the Keys/Springs District in the Student Government Senate elections, and.I was surprised that my name was not even included in the official counts. If I am correct that any name can be put on a blankballot -and I had a number of votes -then I think they should be counted or another vote should be taken. This makes me particularly suspicious after I was verbally accosted by members of the Fusion Party *who told me they were going to file* charges against me for campaign violations if I did not stop campaigning. I would like someone to investigate this matter, if not for me, then for those that believed in what I had to say and, in turn, voted for me.

Yellow, white and purple flowers bordered a stage erected in front of a jagged mountain of darkened wreckage. On either side of the stage were huge video screens with images of American flags and the words "God Bless America" and "Sept. 11, 2001."

Tipoff remains at 7 p.m. in the O'Connell Center. The Gators originally were slated to. play Lokomotiva Bratislava of Slovakia but the team chose to cancel its November USA Tour. "Because of the current situation in the United States, parents and coaches have not allowed the team to travel at this time," said Neal Holden, president of Basketball Travelers, a company that arranges international tours. "Because of the difficulty of getting teams from Europe or Australia, we contacted the University of the Virgin Islands and they have agree to take this tour. The team will be comprised of current UVI players with a couple of players added to strengthen the team." UF plays its first exhibition game of the season Nov. 7 against the Premier Players, a team featuring former Georgia stars Kelly and Coco Miller, as well as Notre Dame standout Ruth Riley.

The senior has scored at least one header in six of her eight career hat tricks. it was-Wambach's second hat trick in as many seasons.against Mississippi State, and first sinceNv. 4 of last season. I don't really count the hat tricksI score and who I score them against," Wambach said. "'s just good to know I can do it every once in-a while. It is difficult to do at this level and it gives you something to strive for." Her hat trick performances have helped UF outscore Mississippi State 11-0 the past two seasons. Mississippi State coach Neil McGuire said Wambach is nearly unstoppable to defend. "Last year we tried to man-mark her, but that didn't work," McGuire said. 04 .3 aching, through the year, It's Ioliday time again, Gators have the cash to buy gifts for their friends, Bells on shop doors ring, With customers you'll be pleasin' Your -register A will go cha-chingi "This year we-tried not to man-mak her. a that didn't work either Atthe-endof "the game I told Becky ureikgh that Abby Wainbach is the best female player I have seen in my life."

2&ALUGATOR, MONDAY; OCTOBER 29,2001 ...... Championships move to wt all-ato Staff Reporl With a Gator vs. Gator final, the Omni Hotels South Regional Women's Tennis Championships are coming to Gainesville. Since, Linsday Dawaf and Alexis Gordon will play each other after winning their respective matches Sunday at the Mobile Tennis Center, the decision was made to play the final Wednesday at home instead of Monday in Mobile, Ala., so the student-athletes would not miss any classes. "We are very, very excited about our play this weekend," UF Voach Roland Thornqvist said. "We showed that not only is our fitness top-notch, but mentally we played very tough. All four [Gators competing] did extremely well." All four UF players competing in the tournament advanced to the quarterfinals of the 64-player singles draw. Junior Julia Scaringe lost her quarterfinal bout to Gordon 6-3, 6-2, while UF sophomore Annika Bengtsson dropped a 7-5, 6-4 decision to Georgia's Agata Cioroch. Dawaf topped Georgia's Tira Hojnik 6-3, 6-1 in her quarterfinal match Sunday before downing Cioroch 6-3, 6-2 to reach the final. After Gordon topped Scaringe, the UF freshman defeated South Alabama's Viktoria Stoklasova 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the semifinals. As finalists, Dawaf and Gordon earn bids into the 2001 Omni Hotels National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships, held Nov. 8-11 at the Brookhaven Country Club. This event is the second of three national collegiate tennis championships during the 2001-02 season. The first, the Riviera Women's and ITA Men's All-American Championships, took place two weeks ago, and the third are the year-end NCAA Championships. Dawaf and Gordon join UF senior Jessica Lehnhoff in the national event. Lehnhoff secured a spot in the singles and doubles draws after winning the Riviera All-American singles title and then pairing with Dawaf to capture the doubles crown. GOLF FINISHES FALL SEASON: The UF women's golf team shot a final round 304 to finish fourth Sunday at the 2001 Lady Paladin Invitational. On the weekend, the Gators shot 312-299-304 -915. Sophomore Amanda Dick led the Gators after shooting 228 (77-74-77), finishing tied, for 16th. Junior Brittany Straza finished one stroke behind Dick, carding a 77-75-77 -229 to tie for 16h. Freshman Whitney Code turned in a 230 (79-77-74), finishing tied for 21 st. JuniorJeanne Cho shot a 231 (82-73-76) to tie for 27th, and Andrea Vander Lende rounded out the 'team scoring after carding a three-round 236 (79-78-79), tying for 50th place. The Lady Paladin Invitational is UF's last of the fall season. The Gators' next tournament is Feb. 11-13 when UF travels to Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., for the 2002 TRW Regional Challenge hosted by Ohio State. SWIMMING FALLS: The Michigan's men's swimming and diving team defeated UF 137-106 on Friday in a dual meet held at Canham Natatorium. The Gators are now 4-1 overallthis season. UF won the first event of the day when Mike Jansen, Ian Chadsey, Adam Sioui and Carlos Jayme combined to finish first in the 400-meter medley relay in 3 minutes,52.33 seconds. Michifan took the next two events beore jayme won the 50 freestyle event, touching the wall in 24.08. Other individual winners for the Gators included Eric Donnelly, who won the 200 IM and 200 butterfly, and Zach Wilcox who won the three-meter diving event. The Gators have a tough weekend ahead of them in their next meets. They travel to Clemson on Nov. 9 for a 4 p.m. meet, then to South Carolina on Nov. 10 for a 9 a.m. start.

Friday's match proved to be as tough as UF had expected, UF coach Mary Wise said. Arkans and UF exchanged leads in Game One seven times-The score remained close until the finish and UF had two gabe points before they finalized with an ace by freshman Lauren Moscovic. In defense, the Gators outblocked the Razorbacks 9-4. This is the 14th straight match in which UF has outblocked its opponent.

Leading the Gators in kills with her 20th consecutive:match with double-digit kills, was sophomore Aury Cruz with 15. Cruz is also the SEC's leader in the number of aces, contributing two in Friday's match. Cruz said the last two matches they've played have been against the toughest opponents they have faced since Sept. 21 when they defeated South Carolina in five games. "I think Arkansas and LSU. LSU played us really good on Wednesday, so those are the two teams that I think are going to give us a lot of trouble," Cruz said about possible SEC tournament opponents. Throughout the match the officials had to keep the rulebook handy as several rare calls were made concerning the new rules implemented at the beginning of the season. During game three, senior Kris Bova chased a ball under the net and hit it back over to the UF side of the court from out of bounds. UF eventually won the point and there was a short delay while questions about the validity of the play were discussed. A foot fault was called on Cruz, Bova kept a play alive by digging it with her foot and there was a point penalty against the Razorbacks when a hit was made from behind the 10-foot line. In tight matches these plays could be a result of nerves, but this was not the case, Bova said. k l |':::: %WOW

OTOi#ER4,0 cd1 ---Junior's season hig -ipr By Bar 1OConl Alligator Staff Writer bsoconnell@alligator.org JACKSONVILLE -Earnest Graham made sure, one way or another, that he would be the difference for UF on Saturday against Georgia. Maybe because he could not be against Auburn. Behind a revamped offensive line and a firm commitment to the run from 'tCoach Steve Spurrier, the missing tailback in UF's loss to the Tigers got 11 first quarter carries for 85 yards. It gave UF the balance on offense lacking two weeks ago. "Coach was saying you can't be a great team unless you run the ball," Graham said. "We haven't run the ball that much in a long time, it was definitely good to get out there and get some work." His first run, a 13-yarder on the game's third offensive play, more than tripled the yardage fellow tailback Robert Gillespie netted on the ground in Auburn. As a team, the Gators had negative-36 yards rushing in that loss. Graham gave a lot of credit to David Jorgensen's return as starting center, and senior Zac Zedalis move to guard. "Any time you lose you have to shake things Op," Graham said. "We came out fSaturd4y] and we executed some assignBulldogs scoreless in third quarter despite long drives from page 24 FOOTBALL drives in the third, one for 65 yards and another for 82, but did not gain any points. Greene brought the Bulldogs to their own 2 yard line before throwing an incomplete pass in the end zone on fourth down. On Georgia's next drive, defensive end Alex Brown sacked Greene for an eight-yard loss at the UF 11 yard line in the final minutes of the quarter. Georgia then missed a 31-yard field goal. "We had opportunities to score that we didn't take advantage of," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "Florida's offense is one of the best in the nation and our defense did a good job of getting the ball a couple of times and giving out offense opportunities." UF's defense held the Bulldogs without anypoints in the second half, despite drives of 65,82,49 and 52 yards. Georgia finished with 369 yards on the day. Reche Caldwell sealed the victory for the Gators, scoring a 30-yard touchdown with 9:12 left to play. .It was CaldweUl's eighth consecutive me with a score, putting him at second place in UP's all-tie list.

The junior rushed for a season high 131 yards. ments; we blocked some people and we had a lot more room to run. We'll probably be with this group for a while." Spurrier stuck with Graham a while, too. Prone to switching tailbacks periodically throughout the game, Spurrier hinted nothing would change this week, saying sophomore Ran Carthon would see action along with Gillespie and Graham. Against the Bulldogs, Gillespie -who was nursing an ankle injury all week did not get a carry until less than 10 minutes were left in the fourth qua e t ad finished with four carries ifor o ya22 rds. ,Carthon played mostly at fullback and made four catches for 49 yards, without a carry. "Earnest ran hard and we ran it straight at them," Spurrier said. "But we had to give Rex,[Grossman] the only touchdown rushing." Without a touchdown, it was not all positive for Graham, who finished with 23 carries for 131 yards, the first Gator to eclipse the century mark this season. He fumbled three times, losing one just four yards from the end zone. In a close game, the fumble had the potential to be the difference until Grossman hit Reche Caldwell for a 30-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. "Sometimes when I'm fighting for extra yards, I forget about the football," Graham said. "He hit the ball almost perfect and it flopped out on me, but Coach took me out because I needed to be taken out." What Graham took out was some frustration after watching the Auburn loss and being helpless to do anything about it. "I used it as motivation, as far as sitting on the sideline," Graham said. "Everyone out there played hard, but yowv always wonder what you can do. Definitely coming out here I wanted to do some things." Early scores give soccer share of SEC East title By. Nick Talbot Alligator Writer nrtalbot@alligator.org Twelve goals and two hat tricks from the No. 15 UF soccer team were too much for the Southeastern Conference's Mississippi teams this weekend. The Gators (13-3-1,8-1 SEC) defeated both Mississippi and Mississippi State 6-0 in victories that gave UF at least a share of its sixth consecutive SEC Eastern Division crown. UF shares the lead-in the league standings with No. 16 Tennessee at one loss each. The Volunteers (11-4, 5-1 SEC) play their final SEC match Nov. 2 at Georgia. "This is my fifth year here and it has been five SEC titles -that is unbelievable," senior Andi Sellers said. "We don't take any of them for granted. There are so many people who want what we have and each one is just as sweet." It was Sellers who led the charge in the win against Mississippi (9-8-1, 4-4 SEC) on Sunday, scoring three goals in just a quarter of the game. "I think that both games this weekend we were creatin a lot of opportunities," Sellers said. "Today a lot of them came my way." :The -Gators offense that s gd to put pportunities the netthroughout the year had n trouble against-either Mississippi team.

"By the end of the season you just get a feel for how everyone plays and that helps a lot." Mississippi's goalkeeper Melinda Smith, who shut out Western Division rivals Auburn and Alabama last week, gave up five goals to the Gators in just over 20 minutes. Sellers scored her first goal off a throw in only eight minutes into the game. Two minutes after Seller's goal, senior Abby Wambach hit a header off a long free kick by sophomore Casey Hamel. Eight minutes later, Sellers danced around two Rebels defenders and kicked a shot past the goalkeeper for a 3-0 lead. Freshman Christine Johnson added her sixth goal of the season two minutes later and Sellers added her final goal two minutes after Johnson's to give the Gators the 5-0 lead be fore half time. "It was good because we wanted to come out here and be very convincing," Sellers said. "We came out here ... and played two games and hopefully showed that we are peaking and ready to go." Wambach added the final goal for UF in the second half. It also was Wambach's 20th goal of the-season and fifth of the weekend. It was Wambach's hat trick Friday that led the way against Missssippi State.

And I think we do have the best players right now. Hopefully it will continue for a while." TWO BLUE: UF's blue jerseys and blue pants are a. unique look, not seen on Gators players since New Year's Day 1998 in the Citrus Bowl.

The UF coach was too tired to stand after watching fumbles, interceptions and penalties as the No. 4 Gators battled through miscues to pull out a 24-10 win against No. 18 Georgia in front of 84,401 fans. "That was a funny game,,":. Spurrier said. "We thought we could pass it, and we thought we could run. We did those things pretty well, but we messed up a lot." The Gators (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) matched or. set new offensive records throughout the game, but did Snottake a commanding lead 4ihltl midway through the fourth quarter. With 584 yards, UF had themost offensive yards in the 97-year history against Georgia (5-2, 3-2 SEC) but scored the least since losing in 1997. With two lost fumbles -two others were recovered -and two interceptions, the Gatorsmanaged to win for the 11lIth time in the last 12 meetings, despite leaving points on the field. "We shot ourselves in the foot so many times," senior Zac Zedalis said. "We all made our share of mistakes. I knew we were going to win this game. We just needed to keep pushing through." Quarterback Rex Grossman ended the first drive of the UF's defense was able to keep Georgia scoreless in the second half en 24-10 win against the Bulldogs. game with an interception which led to a Georgia field goal. The next UF drive tied the ame with a Jeff Chandler field goal after a false start penalty and a sack pushed the Gators from the 1 yard line to the 15. "I don't care [about the missed points]," said Grossman, who threw for his seventh consecutive 300-plus-yard game with 407 yards. "We won the-game. That's all that matters." Grossman finished the day 27 of 35 with two touchdowns while running for another. During the third quarter, UF was again deep in Georgia territory when Earnest Graham's second fumble of the game ended the Gators only drive of the quarter at five plays. Despite three fumbles, Graham had UFs best rushing game of the season with 131 yards on the ground. "We did some things that made it tough on ourselves, but it was a tough win," GraAngelo books I ,Aaff route to the Gators' ham said. "That just goes to show we -have a lot of room to improve. It showr that with some adversity we can pull out the win." The Bulldogs had their own problems during the third quarter.
